I grew up with Sesame Street but I didn't know just how far-reaching its influence was! Today, almost eight million viewers across the globe watch the show each week and more than 77 million consider themselves Sesame Street "graduates." They've received more Emmy awards than any other television program– 109 in all. And this year, Sesame Street is actually celebrating the big 4-0! (I'm slightly relieved they're hitting it before me…)
If your kids can't get enough of Sesame Street, you're in luck. There are two great new DVD releases featuring all their favorite characters ( Elmo, y'all!) in all-new stories the whole family can enjoy together.
Elmo and Friends: Tales of Adventure is action-packed with three incredible stories overflowing with mysterious clues, heroic monsters, and lots of dramatic music! Join Telly as he searches for the Golden Triangle of Destiny; cheer on Elmo as he races against the clock in Elmo’s Amazing Alphabet Race; and help an ant-sized Big Bird alert his friends about his dilemma in The Adventures of Little Big Bird. Elmo and Friends: Tales of Adventure is sure to delight Elmo fans who are looking for a little more excitement than they usually find in the old neighborhood at Sesame Street!
In Being Green, all your favorite Sesame Street friends team up to host their first Earth-a-Thon! The Being Green DVD is available just in time for any Earth Day Celebrations you might be planning. Paul Rudd (sigh) plays Mr. Earth, who teaches Elmo and Abby Cadabby how to be environmentally conscious by recycling, re-using, and conserving water and energy. In her desire to help Elmo to be more “green,” Abby accidentally turns Elmo the color GREEN and can’t remember how to change him back! Being Green also contains 16 pages of downloadable activities and story sheets to extend the learning at home. Teaching budding conservationists the importance of preserving nature’s wonders, Being Green is part of Sesame Workshop’s green-friendly initiatives. In an effort to teach children to love and respect the Earth and its inhabitants, Sesame Street is increasing its environmental messages and materials for kids. In addition, Being Green is printed on 100% post-consumer recycled paper or cardstock and is printed with soy-based ink. It also uses an Earth friendlier reduced-plastic compared to other DVD cases and even features a cool die-cut recycling logo inside! And did I mention how cute Paul Rudd is, even when wearing a gigantic globe? Yes, indeed. Mommy likes a guy who's not afraid to dork out with a bunch of Muppets…
